* BadassGrandpa: Markham is a little older than Katherine, who has grandkids.
* BadBoss[=/=]BenevolentBoss: When giving Katherine advice on dealing with Boyd, he says that he ensures loyalty by overpaying his employees, making sure they're looked after and happy, arguing for the carrot rather than the stick. Then, when pressed, he says that if his employees cross him he'll cut out both their eyes as a "good start". Apparently cutting out on eye is insufficient because a one-eyed man can "still see, still get a driver's license, even". Nor is he in the market for an HonestAdvisor.

* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:Shot by Raylan in the final episode.]]

to:

* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:Shot by Raylan in the final episode. He does try to get in a LastBreathBullet, but Loretta steps on his wrist to keep him from aiming properly and he expires.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LastBreathBullet: [[spoiler:Subverted. Despite being fatally wounded, he tries to grab his gun and shoot at the collapsed Raylan again, but Loretta stops him and he dies unable to get off another shot.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Leitmotif}}: One of the few characters in the show to have one. It's a low, sinister tune that tends to play when he's menacing someone... which is most of his screentime.


* WouldntHitAGirl: [[spoiler:He volunteers to kill Caprice to clean up his own mess, but can't bring himself to do so. It ultimately leads to his death.]]

* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler: He extracts a bullet from his wounded shoulder using nothing but a knife, without anesthesia, then pours salt into his wounds to disinfect them. Walker has a badass tolerance to pain.]]


* {{Badass}}: This man can terrify Boyd Crowder with minimal action. He's legendary among the criminals of Kentucky and is most certainly not to be trifled with.


* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: A lifetime of playing the game in Harlan has given him a leg up on the tricks of everyone in town, like the Bennett apple pie.


* FishOutOfWater: Though they are experienced soldiers and excellent in intimidating people on Markham's behalf, as time goes on they are shown to be out of their element when acting as criminals. [[spoiler: When an interrogation goes wrong, they decide to dump the body in the woods figuring that no one would ever find it. Turns out they wrapped the body in a carpet and dropped it on a hunting trail. During hunting season. The poor guy's corpse is found within a week. They also didn't strip the body, so the local police not only find his ID but Raylan's business card as well. Guess who they immediately call to help identify the body? To take it a step further, they are all killed around the halfway point of the season, due to bad luck, incompetence, or not being GenreSavvy to how harden criminals act.]]

* BigBad: Ultimately subverted. Markham is introduced with the same sort of fanfare as Bo Crowder, Mags Bennett, and Robert Quarles, but his schemes ultimately go nowhere, and rather than driving the plot forward, he finds himself the ''target'' of schemes from players like Boyd Crowder, Wynn Duffy, and Katherine Hale.

Added DiffLines:

* BornInTheWrongCentury: Behaves and even talks like he's a desperado from the Old West instead of the 21st century.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: His preference for headshots (just in case his target is wearing a BulletProofVest ). [[spoiler: Ultimately saves Raylan's life; Boon proved Raylan's equal in terms of speed on the draw, and had Boon gone for center of mass, would have achieved a MutualKill.]]


* BigBadEnsemble: Duking it out with Boyd Crowder and Katherine Hale for Season 6's villain top spot. As of episode four he is arguably the strongest candidate (he has the most power and is therefore the biggest threat, and his plans to take over Harlan are currently driving the main plot), although both Boyd and Hale's plans involve taking him down and either one has the potential to eclipse him before the season ends.

* NiceHat: After meeting Raylan and becoming obsessed with the idea of having a showdown with him, Boon has a custom-made black hat which even Raylan admits looks cool. [spoiler: Raylan takes it for his own after Boon damages Raylan's in their gunfight.]]
